Okay Short
Dots (1940)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

This early short from Norman McLaren basically has a bunch of dots appearing on the screen and moving around to the music score.

I went on a binge of McLaren shorts and this was the last one that I watched and it was also one of the least interesting. There's really nothing ground-breaking here, which is okay but at the same time there's really nothing that entertaining either. I'd argue that the best thing about the movie were the sound effects, which were quite catchy and certainly memorable.
